Journal for Digital Cultures

spheres: Journal for Digital Cultures is an open peer-reviewed web journal associated with the Centre for Digital Cultures (CDC) and supported by an international advisory board. It was developed out of the Making Change project and the Digital Cultures Research Lab (DCRL). It is concerned with contemporary, historical and emerging discussions about ‘Digital Cultures’ and exploring the theoretical, political and social stakes within these debates by reassembling key concepts like public spheres, media spheres and atmospheres.

The purpose of the web journal is to serve as a research resource, freely available as an open access publication, which aims to make sense of the theory and politics of digital cultures. The journal offers an innovative, useful and easy to access resource, combining text with audiovisual content and enabling new narrative forms in the field of digital cultures. spheres, therefore, seeks to promote a dialogue between scholars, policy makers, media artists, activists and hackers, fostering the production of new knowledge, as well as alliances between these actors.

The content of our web journal is generated through open calls, conferences, workshops, production sprints, commissioned works and events carried out by the Centre for Digital Cultures (CDC) and its wider network. The contributions cater to both the traditional needs for high quality academic articles, which go through an open peer-review process, reviews and reports, as well as ad-hoc interventions into and hands-on experiences.
